Imagine a whole album of the worst parts of Perfect Symmetry, and that's what Keane have delivered here.
Lies. Run. Just run away. Hide your cash and credit card in your wallet, then hide your wallet with your grandma, and make her promise not to buy you any CDs this holiday season, if only to make absolutely certain she doesn't accidentally purchase this one because it has cool album art, catchy titles and a sticker on the front saying nice things.
Others have said it in their reviews but I'll repeat the same frustrations here, only with bullets!
--There are only 8 songs on the CD, which sucks even more when you find out the first "song" is a 90 second instrumental waste of space
--Of the guest artists, one speaks Japanese the whole time so you can't understand her and the other uses lines like "Hard to separate my past from a rhyme, Cos how can you separate milk from lime"
--None of the songs are memorable enough to save the rest of the CD, and some repeat the same phrase over and over again, making it seem even more like this was (poorly) thrown together at the last second
Do you like Keane? Don't buy this CD. Do you not like Keane? Don't buy this CD.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not mad. Okay I'm mad, pissed even. But I'm not pissed. Oh wait. Picture this: you're a music artist! And not someone in a basement, you have several CDs, a few hit songs, most people even know your name. Your band puts together 8 "tracks" that consist of an intro with no vocals and lasts a minute and a half, a featured rap artist that talks about being beautiful from your crown to your cuticles and separating milk from lime, a featured Japanese artist that never speaks English during her song so you have no clue what's going on, Keane using THE SAME 3 LINES FOR AN ENTIRE SONG, a song that steals the theme from Rocky, then burns it to a disc and calls it a CD worth asking the public money for. Can you guess what band and CD you are?
Are there some okay songs you can listen to more than once? Yes. Are they worth buying the CD for?Read more ›

If you've been a fan of Keane from the beginning like I have, this album may throw you for a loop at first because of the tracks with the guest artists. Read morePublished 11 months ago by Super Jet Ski Fun Monkeys
In all fairness, this is not technically considered an album, but rather a large EP, with 8 songs lasting about half an hour. Read morePublished 15 months ago by Nathan Albright
So many to bash this album. Take a listen to it some more, heck most say its not long enough (its an EP hence the time is not a full album). Read morePublished 20 months ago by Kirk
I've enjoyed all of Keane's full length albums, but I hesitated to buy this EP because of all the low reviews. I downloaded it anyway and am glad I did. Read morePublished on October 26, 2013 by R. A. Williams

Some very strong 80's like sounds and vibes. Great for the road trip.
ishin Denshin we could do without, but this was never mean,t to be an album and is an ep of odds and ends to keep the fans happy in between albums. Read morePublished on July 28, 2013 by Tim4king

The quirky, eclectic hip-hop sound of "Night Train" is very different from the somber, sweeping piano-based style that put Keane on the map, and I can understand how fans of the... Read morePublished on April 17, 2013 by Ann
